Federation of Ontario Public Libraries

Today we offered a great webinar to provide public libraries in Ontario with support for engaging their MPP’s around increasing funding for public libraries in Ontario.

Now is the time when the provincial government sets it budget.  In the context of the current Public Library Program Funding Review as part of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport’s First Provincial Culture Strategy, we are in a great position to positively influence our own funding.

Please participate!
